In the small town of Opportunity, four mismatched people discover the unexpected power of kindness . Moss has run away from Melbourne to Opportunity on the trail of a man she knows only by name. But her arrival sets in train events that disturb the long-held secrets of three of the town' s inhabitants: Finn, a brilliant mathematician, who has become a recluse; Lily Pargetter, eighty-three-year-old knitter of tea cosies; and Sandy, the town buffoon, who dreams of a Great Galah. It is only as Moss, Finn, Lily and Sandy develop unlikely friendships that they find a way to lay their sorrows to rest and knit together the threads that will restore them to life.
Tender, funny and memorable, Book of Lost Threads is a story about love and loss, parents and children, hope, faith and the value of simple kindness.
A really beautiful book and lovely story. Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down and read the whole book in one night. It was so easy to get involved in the lives of the main characters and the town of Opportunity, and feel as if you were part of this loving community. Very happy with the conclusion to the book. Can't wait to see what Tess Evans brings us next!
The Book of Lost Threads is an emotive and hugely satisfying read. The characters are beautifully drawn and each one is developed fully - you really take them into your heart. It's one of those books that is very easy to read; you don't want to put it down - the story keeps you wanting more. This story stayed with me for days after I finished it.......several of the themes really resonated with me - stirring up long forgotten feelings of love and loss. There is a deep kindness; a warmness that fills this book and in turn the reader. I loved The Book of Lost Threads and highly recommend it. I will definitely be passing it on to my mum and sisters to read.
